Hampton VA Injury Lawyer Reports- Wrong Way Crash Kills Woman, Hurts 5
A driver caused a terrible head-on collision on Interstate 64 Sunday morn, by going east in the west-bound lanes in the border between Hampton and Newport News. This kind of crash is one of the scariest a person can face on the highway as a car comes at you at 55 miles an hour or more in a way that is totally unexpected. My prayers go out to the folks in the car that was hit, both the dead and injured, as well as their families.
The people hurt in this senseless accident likely want answers. Why did the at-fault driver do this? Were they drunk or drugged? A personal injury lawyer can help learn what really happened.
Another reason to hire an experienced accident lawyer is to make sure that all sources of auto insurance are discovered to pay the medical bills, lost wages. and other damages caused to the victims in a serious injury matter like this. The insurance picture is more complicated when several passengers and a driver all have big claims and may involve not only the coverage of the wrong-way driver, but also under-insured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage.
